How To Create My Own Fields

It would appear that I can only use the fields that are already included in the contact form. It's very important that I be able to add a field for 'county'.  Is this possible? If so, would someone please direct me as to how it's done?

Hi @WillieT23 , 

 

Great question! You can certainly add your own custom fields to a signup form. You can create custom fields through the My Account tab, or during the contact import process. This guide should show you how to accomplish both, as well as add those fields to a signup form.

Thank you so much for that. I did create a few fields but now I need to know how to delete the fields that were already on the Lead Generation Page.

 

Also, How can I delete my address text from the bottom of the forms and landing page? 

Hi @WillieT23 ,

 

If you're needing to remove existing fields from your landing page, you can just un-checkmark those options under the Contact fields sidebar, when editing the form. If you're needing to wholly delete a custom field from your account, you can do so through My Account > Advanced Settings > Custom fields.

 

Physical address information is required legally and by Compliance, therefore your account's physical address that appears at the bottom of emails by default will also display in form footers by default.

Can I at least change the way the address display? For example, I might prefer it to display as 1 line instead of 2 or 3 lines.

At this time, any forms created directly through our system will have the same default footer setups. Some elements for coded forms (inline and pop-up forms) may adopt certain elements from your website's coding, such as font type and coloring. Landing page forms' footers will utilize whatever coloring choices you make while editing the form, but otherwise can't be edited.
